Man, 25, Attacked Mother After Her Dog Ate His Marijuana, Cops Charge
A Florida man yesterday shoved his mother to the ground after her dog ate his pot, according to cops who arrested the suspect for domestic battery.
Mackenzie Freeman, 25, “became upset” early Tuesday morning “after his mother’s dog ate his marijuana,” a criminal complaint notes.
The 6’ 2”, 222-pound Freeman argued with his 57-year-old mother in the pair’s Largo home before he allegedly pushed her to the ground and hit her in the head with a pair of pants. Freeman, seen at right, also “punched several holes in the walls,” police reported.
Court filings do not indicate how much marijuana was consumed by the dog, or if the animal suffered adverse effects from ingesting the pot.
When cops arrived at the residence, Freeman (seen above) took off running, but was eventually apprehended after a brief foot chase. He was returned to the residence, where cops found a marijuana pipe “in plain view” in the living room.
After being read his rights, Freeman reportedly claimed ownership of the pipe and “admitted to pushing his mother down and hitting her in the head with his pants.” A Largo Police Department officer noted in the complaint that Freeman stated that his mother "deserved it."
Freeman was charged with three misdemeanors: domestic battery, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an officer without violence. He was released from jail late Tuesday afternoon on his own recognizance.
Freeman’s rap sheet includes prior arrests for theft, burglary, and narcotics possession.
